. >>> want to take you to washington, d.c. we see nancy pelosi talking outside the white house after meeting with the president this morning with other congressional leaders. let's listen in. >> we should have a goal in terms of how much deficit reduction. we should have a deadline before christmas. we should show some milestones of success so that confidence can build as we reach our solution. because if we do not reach agreement, not only will we miss the opportunity for doing something good for our economy and lifting the spirits and the confidence in our country, we will have an economic downturn that must be avoided. we understand our responsibility there. we understand that it has to be about cuts. it has to be about revenue. it has to be about growth. it has to be about the future. so as we cut investments and as we talk about revenue, we have to do so in a way that promotes growth and supports the future. it was good. i feel confident that a solution may be in sight. mitch? >> i can only echo the observations of the other leaders that it was a constructive meeting. we all understand
: someone tried to ask nancy pelosi. isn't there a way that we cannot sort of close loopholes and not raise taxes on the rich. she's like no! no! there is not enough revenue there. bush tax cuts are done! >> they were supposed to expire two years ago. they were meant to expire. it was written -- >> stephanie: tom in pennsylvania. hello, tom. >> hey steph. how you doing? welcome from the northernmost county of alabama. look, i don't mean to be dr. buzz kill but you know, these guys on fox and the entire right wing establishment they're really not a joke. i mean they -- we like to laugh at them and it is good fun to laugh at them. and you need to laugh at them in a way but as a historian which is how i was trained they really remind me of how nazi, germany got started. >> stephanie: you beat jim to that this morning. >> caller: no. anyway i could duplicate his version of -- but it really bothers me when i look at these people who make up news. >> stephanie: yep. exactly. by the way someone was calling
, and meeting with this people provides great theater for that public. >> didn't nancy pelosi say today they would have milestones along the way and that there might be miniature goals as we get to the end? >> yes. >> how do you see that playing out? >> well, i think that this, again -- gwen: is this part of the public? >> this is a sign they have to get this done. there is nobody right now on either side of the aisle who wants to see this happen. i think what you're seeing when harry reid, for instance, is standing there and practically promising that we're going to get a deal before december 31, he stood up there and said that today. they mean business. >> right. >> there are lots of pieces to this. i think what they agreed to today is divide into pieces. how do we deal with the end of the year problem on spending, what do we do about a longer term deficit thing. they're trying to set up a framework to get it done. gwen: the sequester is what they're going to talk about down the road? >> they're probably going to find a settlement for this year, whether they do $100 billion down payme
nancy pelosi smacked down without the slightest hesitation. >> we've seen talk about a possible compromise that would leave rates the same but cap deductions for high income earners. is that something that's acceptable? >> no. >> not at all. no way. >> no, the president made it very clear in his campaign there is not enough -- there are not enough -- what you just described is a formula and a blueprint for hampering our future. >> yes, it does seem that the gop's new ideas look a lot like their old ideas, which were just litigated in the election and lost. of course, mitt romney's chalked that up to gifts from the praez's president's camp. how is that going over? >> i just think it's nuts. i mean, first of all, it's insulti insulting. this would be like walmart having a bad week and going the customers have really been unruly. >> we'll grant mr. gingrich his share of schadenfreude but surely mr. romney is getting more support in other republican quarters for taking on the takers. >> we're in a big hole. we're not getting out of it by comments like that. when you're in a hole, st
? >> if the president had a mandate, nancy pelosi would be the speaker of the house. >> the same question i put to gene sperling. how confident are you as these first face-to-face negotiations began, there will be a deal that you and your colleagues can support? >> very confident. there is an opportunity the president has to lead the country in a way that he wanted to back in 2008. there is a benefit to limited government. the president did not have it in 2009 when there was an expectation. listen, this move forward with the agenda. now, there is a restraining influence. i think there is an obscenity for both of these men, the state senate, their dispositions to come up with a remedy to get it done. >> would be better if it was just the two of them? >> are you stringing me out? >> well, they both have temperaments that can get to yes and that is a good thing in leaders. >> thank you for joining us. >> great, thank you. one of the players in these negotiations. thank you for that republican perspective.
